What oil/balm to oil cleanser do you use?

And, do you recommend it?
I'm almost at the end of a cheapy one I picked up in Primark a few weeks before lockdown & have a small No7 hot cloth cleanser to use once that's gone.
I wondered if anyone uses a particularly nice oil cleanser (pref. one that emulsifies with water & definitely don't fancy coconut oil).
My favourite one is Skinfood Black Sugar but thought I might try something new.

I like the Hada Labo Gokujun Oil Cleanser. Emulsifies, unscented, very gentle. It's a bit of a bugger to get recently because of CV. I've used a Simple one from Boots, and it was good too. I just preferred the packaging of the Hada Labo one.

DHC Cleansing Oil. Expensive but you only need one pump to dissolve all traces of make up etc.

The Simple one! I know a lot of people say it smells like cooking oil, but I really don’t mind nor want to spend much money on something that gets washed down the sink after 5 seconds. It emulsifies nicely.

Super Facialist Vitamin C + Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil is my new favourite. £10.99 at look fantastic. Emulsifies well and my skin is lovely and hydrated.

Superfacialist as above. Always on offer from boots or sometimes tkmax or Sainsburys.
It’s very good.

I just use olive oil. My mum has done the same for years, and she’s now 75 and has lovely skin still.
Blackdoggotmytonguestill · 31/05/2020 21:59
I use the one from Rocky Mountain Soap Co.

I use eve lom and have done for years. Pricey but I just love it
BobbinThreadbare123 · 31/05/2020 22:02
I use the Superfacialist one (Boots have got it for six quid atm, and it's often on offer there and in Sainsbury's) or Elemis Superfood cleansing oil. Bit of a price difference but the Elemis one was a present and it has lasted me ages!

Another vote for Superfacialist Vit C cleansing oil £6 on Amazonat the money!!! I prefer it over any other oil or balm, even my Emma Harding Moringa balm.
Petrarkanian · 31/05/2020 22:04
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm. Love it, all natural and removes all my makeup.
Shmithecat2 · 31/05/2020 22:04
That was meant to say £6 on Amazon at the moment!!! 😳

Dr Haushka cleansing milk is really great at tough eye makeup as well. A bottle lasts me at least 6 months
KitKatKit · 31/05/2020 22:13
DHC. It's fab.
LovingLola · 31/05/2020 22:15
Switch between Balance Me, Eve Lom and Elemis.
I get them on Beauty Expert with 3 for 2 and extra 10% off offers

Superfacialist, love the smell and always on offer either at Boots or Sainsbury's.
Also like No7 radiant results balm cleanser.
newbienewbie20 · 31/05/2020 22:17
I love the Elemis one for a balm and the Votary one for an oil, both smell like a facial in a pot
CeeCeeEnnEss · 31/05/2020 22:35
DHC or Evolve Beauty, both lovely.
Laquila · 31/05/2020 22:41
The Superfacialist one is my absolute hero product. Love that stuff!!
Karwomannghia · 31/05/2020 22:45
I love the body shop oils of life gel cleanser. It melts on and then turns creamy. I love the feel of it and the smell.
Juanmorebeer · 31/05/2020 23:01
The elemis one is the BEST. Either the original smell or the rose.
I don't really rate the clinique one. It is completely fragrance free but it feels like it doesn't wash off very well.
lucysmam · 01/06/2020 08:36
Thank you all! The Superfacialist one seems popular so I'll have a look at that one first and then the others.
Ponks · 01/06/2020 08:52
The original Elemis balm is so heavily fragranced it stings my eyes. The rose version is much less irritating.
lotusbell · 01/06/2020 22:39
I liked the fresh citrussy scent of the Superfacialist oil but it didn't do anything special to my skin, I prefer the Elemis one. Balmwise, i like Elemis and Emma Hardy.
frugalkitty · 01/06/2020 23:22
Elemis balm is amazing stuff, and rinses clean away with no residue or dryness. QVC are doing three easy pays on Elemis through June (code shows on the website) and you've got thirty days to return it if you try it and it doesn't agree with you.
